Updated! (Poll): Ask BCB - Wacky Trade Proposals



A recent fanpost and the subsequent reaction has me thinking that we need one consolidated repository for all "No bleeping way" trades, much like the most "popular" beat writer to BCB does each year.

Readers should submit them here, and fellow BCB-ers should critique the trades using their friend, the "reply" function.

If this catches on, I'll accept submissions until the end of the week, and then create a poll of the top 10 trades.  Contenders will be chosen by me based on uniqueness, entertainment value and how much alcohol I have in my system when I make the selections.

Trades should be possible, but can be entirely unrealistic.  (Meaning don't propose trades for dead people, fictional characters, etc.)  Favoring the Cubs heavily is always an option, but feel free to mix it up by giving away more than you get in return.  Trade ideas that have been beaten to death are ok, but probably won't prompt a lot of discussion.

Happy Monday.  Have at it.

Also, congrats to NU.  I didn't like the outcome, but they look like a pretty decent team.  Maybe they can win their first bowl game in 60 years.  I keed . . . kind of.

As promised, here's the poll.  I picked the 10 that, well, I felt like picking.  Actually, there were only about 12-15 ones that didn't involve fictional characters, free agents, non-players, etc.
